That’s very cute! I have the same question… who has cut a mini-cake just for ceremonial purposes?

I want to do a cupcake stand with a mini cake on top for cutting. But I want to put my grandparent’s cake topper on it and I’m afraid the tiny cake will be engulfed by the topper. Who has done the mini cake and how did it look?

colorfulbride- I would say 2 tiers is fine as long as you work on proportion. I’ve made a few wedding cakes before and two tiers can look really squatty and awkward if they are short, wide tiers. If they’re taller, skinny tiers, 2 tiers can look fabulous.

We are doing cupcakes and a tiny cake for cutting too. 

@Colorfulbride- How many are in your wedding party and are you saving the top tier or just a slice?  Depending on the size of the base of the cake I think two tiers should be enough. (10″ diameter should be good for the base cake) 

@Dreamer12781- Our baker is placing our mini cake in the middle of the table surrounded by our cupcakes and sugar sand (beach theme).  He showed us pics of what he was talking about and it looked really nice.  I wanted to do a cake topper still though and he said it could be done and wouldn’t look off as long as the cake under it was a little bit bigger.  Our cake will be 7″ in diameter so some cake will show under the topper.
